  1. Potential firefighters have to train for about 600 hours over the course of 12 to 14 weeks to become certified active-duty firefighters. Because training requires as much as 40 to 48 hours per week, firefighter training is a full-time job. The courses normally are conducted by the fire department at a fire academy, but a college or state government division may conduct them.
